Breastfeeding | Storing Breast Milk, Returning to Work and Weaning

Breastfeeding is one of the greatest experiences for me during early motherhood. I breastfed my eldest until she was almost 18 months and my little one year old until he was 8 months. Breast milk has been such a wonderful source of nutrients and healing for my babies. My experience breastfeeding my son was a bit more challenging. Nonetheless both experiences were beautiful and exhausting, but I loved every moment of watching them nurse.

I can say that I was a little obsessed with pumping. I purchased a hand pump from Amazon and a double electric pump from my insurance company.  I’d pump on a regular schedule if my little fatso wasn’t eating and if I wasn’t sleeping.

I attended Baby Expo Chicago 2016 at the Marriott O’Hare. Hosted by Hope McComb,  a Chicago area family business the expo provides an opportunity to check out new products  and resources. It was an excellent event. I had a chance to meet some great vendors.

Pratico Kitchen 18oz Leak-Proof Glass Bottles, 2-Pack

I was recently sent these 18 oz glass bottles to review by Pratico Kitchen.  I wanted to try these because they reminded me of the old fashioned glass milk bottles from back in day when the milk man use to deliver milk to door, well before my time. These are  just a little more modern and a lot more sleek and stylish. For a peace of mind and leak proof glass bottles, if you are are looking for a nice bottle that is of a good quality
